FOR SCHOOLS, OFFICES AND COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS, INSTITUTIONAL 
STRUCTURES AND ALL MAJOR CONSTRUCTION 


This is a high-grade, heavy section, projected window, the ven¬ 
tilator movement being through the medium of heavy bronze adjust¬ 
able friction shoes riding in guides concealed in the weathering. 

Supplied for either inside or outside putty glazing or inside angle 
glazing. See section details page 5. 

Hardware is fully Polished Solid Bronze. Adjacent ventilators are 
provided with combination latch and strike. 

Either equal or unequal leg frame sections are available. The 
equal leg construction is recommended for schools and other installa¬ 
tions where simplicity of interior trim details is desired. Only a 
single rebate in the masonry is necessary and the interior trim can 
be carried direct to the window frame itself. The use of this equal 
leg section makes an exceedingly strong and rigid window con¬ 
struction. 

Unusual attention is given to the assembly of these windows to 
insure perfect operation. Welded in jig frames; proper alignment, 
tight weathering, and thorough rigidity become inbuilt features of 
this Vento line. 

Mullions, where required, are supplied with heavy plate covers. 

Windows are given one coat of priming paint before shipping. 


STnnDHRD TVPES HI1D SIZE5 

Windows of the type illustrated can be supplied in widths 
varying by 6" from the minimum to maximum limits indicated.

PIVOTED 


These windows are made of full 1%-inch section under air 
hammer assembly and arc welding. Rigid, strong and durable. 

Pivoted ventilators have concealed hinges. 

Projected vents have adjustable friction through the medium 
of sliding bronze shoes. 

Standard hardware is solid bronze semi-finished, and rust 
proofed steel fittings. 

Standard window finish is a high-grade brown oxide paint. 
Other finishes available on special order. 

Flat screens supplied for both pivoted and projected windows. 
Pivoted windows to be screened require special preparation 
and special hardware. Projected windows with inward opening 
vents when screened show greater economy. 

Vento Windows are welded insuring perfect alignment. Vento 
welded construction retains this alignment permanently. 

The initial assembly of frame members is by tenon construc¬ 
tion. These tenons are securely air hammered. Following the jig 
assembly, MAIN JOINTS are welded. 

The Vento welding process, developed in our own shops, ac¬ 
complishes a clean, smooth joint that does not interfere with 
glass or glazing, yet actually fuses the metal together.
